This chapter analyzes the case of Miss B, a fifteen-year-old young woman, who has come to Dr CD's office and asked for contraceptive care. She explains that for several months she has been sexually active with a young man a few years older than she is whom she intends to marry, but the social circumstances of both of them preclude marriage for the following two years. When asked, she replies that she believes that her boyfriend had sexual experience with other girls before they met, but that she is confident that she is now his only sexual partner. It discusses what Dr CD's responsibilities are, given medical, ethical, legal, and human rights considerations.
